What if I skip Saturated Fat?

Recommended Posts

I thought saturated fats were bad so I'm a bit concerned with consuming things like Almond Milk due to the high Saturated Fat.  So what is I skip it and just eat everything else but the fat, what will happen?  Is there a supplement I should take to make up for this?  I just don't understand.

So, you need some fat in your diet. It's good for you, it helps you use certain fat soluble vitamins and minerals, it keeps you satisfied between meals. You don't have to have almond milk or any nut products, but you're going to want to have some fat. Check out the meal template for serving sizes and some options, and remember that you can also make sauces and dressings using things like olive oil if you prefer -- look for recipes for whole30 compliant pesto or chimichurri sauces, for instance.

This article has some information:  ,https://whole30.com/2016/03/animal-oils-1/, and you might want to look for a copy of the book It Starts With Food fir more on why Whole30 has you eat what it does and why it leaves out what it leaves out.

I highly recommend reading It Starts With Food if you're confused about why you definitely should and need to be eating fats.

If you're still not convinced, you should read "The Big Fat Surprise" by Nina Teicholz. She heavily researched the science behind the dietary recommendation of lowering fat intake and her book shows how this recommendation not only came to be, but why it is utterly wrong. Remember, our dietary recommendations were born out of politics, not science. 

It is really worth spending a little time researching this topic. Your health likely depends on it. In the meantime, trust the Whole30 advice and don't cut out fat.
